My 4th book (in Japanese) will be published in ten days, but it's the first book in that it focuses on myself - about my lifestyle.
It was really painful experience to talk about myself. Reading drafts, some guys of my NPO said to me: "oh TJ, the book seems to be a bit arrogant, and I don't like it", although I was extremely careful about abolishing self-consciousness in the book. I resisted 100 temptations to say "shut up. then you do it" (actually I couldn't swallow all of them, haha).
To be honest, I'm not sure if I want to publish the book. Whenever I author a book, I wonder whether my future kids would proud of it. If the answer is no, I don't write it, although the book could be a good promotional opportunity for my NPO or my business.
I know it is no use crying over spilled milk. I just would wait judgment of the readers.
